私はしばらくの間、さまざまな観葉植物に関するデータを取得するためにMiFloraHomeAssistantの統合を訴えてきました. しかし、その過程で、限られた範囲のBluetoothを含むさまざまなハードルを克服する必要がありました。, バッテリー寿命の問題, 報告するバッテリー値を取得する. 私はついにこれらすべてをクラックしたようで、今では家の周りのたくさんの植物で確実に機能するシステムを持っています. 私が使用したものを以下に要約しました.


The first thing to say is that I do have a bluetooth USB dongle attached to my home assist­ant sys­tem. This mon­it­ors the plants in range dir­ectly (i.e. the ones in the same room as the HA box). To mon­it­or more dis­tance devices I have used an ESP32 board with built-in bluetooth mod­ule which I have inside a cheap little case and have powered with an old micro-USB phone charger

  • USB Dongle: the one I got is no longer avail­able — due to age — but there are plenty of amazon and else­where — just make sure it has sup­port in linux
  • ESP32 board: I got a JZK ESP32‑S which is cur­rently £6.49 on amazon
  • Case for ESP32: I found the case for a NodeM­CU Wroom-32D (short aer­i­al) fit­ted my board — this was £4.20 from ebay

Integrations for Home Assistant

Whilst the basic MiFlora integ­ra­tion is built in to home assist­ant I found it uses a lot of bat­tery when used nat­ively. Instead I use the Bluetooth Low Energy Mon­it­or 3rd party integ­ra­tion which you can install eas­ily using HACS
I then also installed the ESPHome integ­ra­tion for home assist­ant to man­age my ESP32 BLE repeater
最後に, to dis­play the plants in a nice way I added a par­tic­u­lar fork of the lovelace plant card addon via HACS


Once BLE Mon­it­or was installed and con­figured with my bluetooth dongle it picked up the MiFlora sensors with­in range and lis­ted them in its “devices” drop down as well as list­ing the devices and entit­ies on it’s card in the HA configuration
The great thing about BLE mon­it­or is that it listens for the sensors to trans­mit, rather than act­ively polling them, which would run down their bat­ter­ies. 但し, the sensors don’t trans­mit bat­tery inform­a­tion so to get this we have to act­ively poll for it. Polling just for this, and pass­ively listen­ing for the oth­er data seems to be the best com­prom­ise if you want to have all the data avail­able but also max­im­ise the sensor’s bat­tery life. I have sep­ar­ated my configuration.yaml into mul­tiple sep­ar­ate files to keep things a bit easi­er to man­age so I just have the fol­low­ing line in my configuration.yaml —

Then in sensors.yaml I have each plant lis­ted as follows

Next — to make the plants appear nicely I have a plants con­fig. As before a single line in configuration.yaml to start with

And then in plants.yaml I have as follows

Note the subtle dif­fer­ence between the entity name for the bat­tery com­pared with the oth­er sensors. The bat­tery entity is com­ing from the miflora plat­form in sensors.yaml whilst the oth­er 4 sensors are com­ing from the BLE integ­ra­tion. There IS a bat­tery entity lis­ted by the BLE integ­ra­tion but this just shows as “unknown” for this plant. This con­fig­ur­a­tion is needed for the plant card to show the plant in a nicely presen­ted way
Then simply go to a the place you want to add your plant and add the lovelace plant card. You will have to “con­fig­ure” the card manu­ally, but it only takes 3 lines…

Note that the spe­cies is lis­ted for 2 REASのアドオン. Firstly it will dis­play the name on the card, しかし、より多くの輸入antly, it will also dis­play a pic­ture of the plant if you have down­loaded the plant images and added them into \config\www\images\plants using the lat­in names — the inform­a­tion on the data­base is avail­able on the lovelace plant card documentation

Extending range

最後に, we need to extend the range we can reach. For this we need the ESP32 device. The first thing to do is to get it hooked up to your com­puter via USB and flash it with a basic ESPHome image
私は ESPHome Flash­ercp210x uni­ver­sal win­dows driver from SiL­abs and fol­lowed the guide provided by the ESPHome Home­As­sist­ant integration
The con­fig I used for my ESP32 device is below

Then save and update to your esp32 device via wifi. The ESP32 device will pick up the data from the miflora sensor and will ‘push’ it via wifi to the BLE integ­ra­tion which will cre­ate a device and entit­ies auto­mat­ic­ally. Devices pushed in this way do appear to show their bat­teyr level (thanks to the code at the bot­tom of the myhomeiot_ble_client sec­tion I believe). You then just need to give the device a nice name (and let the entit­ies be renamed too) and then cre­ate an entry in plants.yaml with the right entities

こんにちは, thank you for post­ing this great solution.
Can the esp32 Bluetooth gate­way trans­mit data more than one bluetooth device or or do you have to provide one ESP 32 for each Bluetooth device we want to extend the range for?


Hi Tony
The ESP will trans­mit data for any BT devices with­in range I believe although as mine is cur­rently only used for 1 BT device I can­’t con­firm 100% — but that is cer­tainly my understanding
